Whistler Blackcomb sets new December snowfall record

It was a December to remember at Whistler Blackbomb.

Heavy snowfall in the final days of 2018 led to a record 384 cm of fresh snow in December, according to daily statistics compiled by the mountain, besting the 380 cm of snow that fell in December of 1994.

“It was a phenomenal holiday period and we’ve got a great base to start the season, particularly given the snow we’ve had in the first days of January,” said said Whistler Blackcomb spokesperson Marc Riddell. “It took some time to arrive this season, but it’s not letting up.

The sky has continued falling in January. Some 74 cm of snow hit the mountains between Wednesday and Thursday this week. It was hell on the roads, but heaven on the hills, where the storm delivered prime conditions for the weekend.

Those looking to take advantage of all that fresh snow are asked to watch the website and social media for the latest weather and conditions, and check DriveBC for road information.
